Pingla Blast: Locals claim it was a bomb making factory, CM Mamata Banerjee orders CID probe

WEST BENGAL: As the anger grew over the killing of 11 people on Wednesday at a reported manufacturing unit for preparing fire crackers, the Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee has ordered a CID inquiry into the same. The locals however claim that what is portrayed as the fire crackers preparing unit was actually an illegal bomb making factory. 

On the other hand, CPIM State Secretary Suryakanta Mishra has reportedly echoed the voice of the locals and claimed that was shown as a manufacturing unit was actually used for making huge deadly bombs in an illegal way and the incident is no less than Burdwan’s Khagragarh blast.(Also Read: 11 Killed in Bengal Cracker Factory Blast)

As quoted in a media report, Mishra claimed that the owner of the house was none other than West Midnapore’s influential TMC leader Ranjan Maity. Maity has reportedly been killed with his wife in the incident.

The official handle of TMC on Thursday posted regarding the incident on Twitter and informed of the CID probe being ordered in the same. 


Slamming the West Bengal CM, Mishra reportedly said that Banerjee is quite casual about the incident as she referred the incident as an accident while making crackers for marriage ceremony. 

He was further quoted that both police and state administration is reluctant about the happening as they were in case of Khagragarh.

He then concluded by saying that the very treacherous incident has a big long secret behind which might be revealed in near future.

Kabir Suman, Bengal's renowned singer and MP from Jadavpur, in his recent book, Nishaner naam Tapasi Malik, exposed how the anti-land-grabbing movement in Nandigram has been an armed rebellion, and has succeeded because of close coordination between the TC and the armed villagers backed by the Maoists. The book gave a detailed description of his visit to Satengabari in West Midnapur along with TC leaders Partha Chaterjee and Shisir Adhikari, when they met the armed villagers. Suman makes no bones in expressing his support to the armed struggle of the villagers. He describes how a villager asked for a self-loading rifle at Satengabari village: "We can get the money but where will we get the rifle with magazine, uncle?" Interestingly, Suman dedicated the book to Maoist politburo member Kisenji. Suman's book said "anti- land- grabbing activists" Raja Sarkhel and Prasun Chaterjee, along with Naxalite leaders Purnendu Basu, Dola Sen, and TC leaders Saugata Roy and Shovandeb Chattopadhay, had attended a meeting on Nov 6, 2007 at Trinomool Congress Bhavan at Tiljala in Kolkata. Later, both Raja Sarkhel and Prasun Chaterjee were arrested under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act for being active Maoists. Madhusudan Mondal, the arrested Maoist zonal committee secretary for Nandigram, admitted before CID, that Trinomool Congress MP Subhendu Adhikari had supplied over 1,000 rounds of ammunition to the Maoist party cadre during the Nandigram movement in 2007.
